Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

WARSAW (Reuters) - A Sudanese woman gave birth on a tram in the centre of Poland's capital, ensuring instant celebrity for her baby daughter, Polish media reported on Thursday.

Duha Ismail -- whose first name means "light" -- was welcomed to the world on Wednesday by photographers' flashbulbs and the scribbling pens of reporters. Warsaw Mayor Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz later visited her in the hospital.

"I was coming back from a meeting when suddenly the pain came," said Duha's mother, Sulafa Ismail, looking happy and healthy in a bright red turban, according to PAP news agency. "Everything happened so fast."

City officials will debate a proposal on Thursday to award Duha free lifetime access to Warsaw's public transport.

Sulafa Ismail, 37, came to Poland to study medicine 17 years ago, according to Polish media. She has lived in Warsaw for five years.
